All eyes are certain to be on the Pistons' first round pick.
In fact, Drummond might be the most anticipated rookie to play for the Pistons since, well, we won't go there.
A lot has been made about Drummond, and this will be our first time seeing him in action for Detroit.
However, fans will need to temper their expectations some.
Drummond has not been properly coached for some time, and his extremely raw game will probably appear even more raw in this context.
That being said, I would like to see a few things out of him.
First, I don't want to see tentativeness or timidness in the paint. If a ball comes off the rim, I want Drummond seeking out contact.
Second, I want him to finish plays strong. If he gets a nice dish down low, I don't want him to retreat, I want him to attack. Stuff the ball with authority and try to break the rim.
Third, I want to see consistent effort.
Too often during his days in Connecticut, Drummond would go long stretches where I wasn't sure if he was still on the court.
I want him to protect the rim and announce his presence. We have had enough big guys that play like little guys. I want Drummond to play like the big guy he is, and I want to see that this week.
